This is a Chinese company specialised in designing and manufacturing household appliances.
According to the company development strategy, it seeks constant temperature control technology applied to gas water heaters from European market.
The Chinese company prefers a commercial agreement with technical assistance cooperation method.
The Chinese company was founded in 1986 starting as a tiny conventional household appliance workshop. The company’s main products include refrigerators, freezers, household ovens, washing machines, televisions, air conditioners, water heaters, extractor hoods and gas cooking stoves etc. After more than 30 years of development, it has developed into one of the famous members in the field of household appliances. In the meantime, the company has gained its famous and reputable brand as well as dozens of subsidiary brands. The company has a mature marketing channel and a stable client base.
In order to keep ahead of the market, the company gives high emphasis on the products innovative technology development. The Chinese company is willing to embrace potential partners' new perspectives and corporate cultures.
Currently, the Chinese company is looking for constant temperature control technology applied to gas water heaters from the European market. The needed design will be used to update the Chinese company’s gas water heater product catalogue.
If the water pressure, water flow, gas pressure and external wind pressure change during the usage of current gas water heaters, the temperature of the water supply will fluctuate excessively and it will take too long time to keep to a constant temperature.
In addition, under the different altitudes and different gas pressures conditions, the combustion stability of the whole machine can’t be self-adjusted, which will affect the constant temperature effect and combustion stability.
What the Chinese company expects:
1. Mature modules or products which could be applied in domestic home appliances, at affordable costs.
2. Innovative technology which can be proved by a laboratory test to satisfy the above requirements.
The Chinese company prefers a commercial agreement with technical assistance cooperation method. But other cooperation methods also could be considered.
- Type of partner sought: The followings are detailed requirements:
1. Constant temperature:
Under the condition of constant gas pressure and external wind pressure, without water inlet temperature sensor and water quantity detection server, the maximum water flow rate is Qmax (0.1MPa) and the minimum water flow rate is Qmin (start-up pressure). The outlet water can be kept within the range of flow fluctuation (Qmax + Qmin) / 2 ± 30%, and the temperature fluctuation shall not exceed ± 1 ? compared with the set temperature.
2. Combustion adaptation:
a. Under the condition of low gas pressure (gas pressure as low as 500Pa), stable combustion (without flame separation, tempering, deflagration, etc), normal ignition can be achieved, and the flue gas does not exceed the standard.
b. When the external air pressure changes (-200Pa to 500Pa), it can realise stable combustion (without flame separation, tempering, deflagration, etc), normal ignition, and the flue gas does not exceed the standard.
3. Altitude adaptation: at different altitudes, the air density is different, and the combustion control can be adjusted according to different altitudes, which can achieve constant temperature, stable combustion (without flame separation, tempering, deflagration, etc), normal ignition, and the flue gas does not exceed the standard.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Potential partners also should be able to provide relevant technical training or support for the new technology implementation into the Chinese company's gas water heater products.
European combustion experts/universities/institutes/companies who have satisfactory experience regarding constant temperature control, combustion algorithm and novel combustions technologies are preferred.
Potential European partners who have other advanced and innovative gas water heaters technology are also welcome for a talk.
